Playlist for November: Work it Out

7:00:00 AM


Last month, I spent some time working on my playlist curation skills.

A brief history: my playlist production peaked during high school when making mix CDs was the most important thing after having a drivers license. I got pretty good at this because I practiced a lot. My proudest mix, in fact, was the one I made for the drive to Eagle Rock (really, really far away from my parents' house) to take the SAT one Saturday morning. The mix was titled: Pumped UP Transitioning into Chilled OUT SAT Perfection Mix. And then I got a perfect score on the SATs.

Really?!


No. But I did get a good score, and I did do well enough to get into the school of my dreams :-)

Sadly, I didn't really keep up with the mix-making habit after the CD era came to an end... which, *and my close friends will be able to attest to this* was foolish because my car has a CD player only. No AUX, no tape deck, no satellite radio. Blame it on laziness, on Pandora, or Mercury in retrograde...?

So why am I just now getting back into this whole playlist making thing?

Running.

Since I've forced myself to get into running over the last couple months, I've learned this important fact about myself: I like running. <-- This is huge news. And there is a caveat here: I require seriously beat-heavy music to be blasting in my ears as my feet pound the pavement. So I thought I'd share what's working for me. At the moment. I hope it works for you too. *Or if it doesn't, that it inspires you to find something that does. 



* I feel that I must warn of the gratuitous amounts of Kanye West and a few bad words. 😁
